TREATMENTS ARE AVAILABLE IN GUELPH AND SURROUNDING AREA

Every patient receives a full body assessment to find all the dysfunctions that may be influencing the health of the whole. You may have forgotten about an old injury but your body has not! Our assessments often reveal areas of restriction that patients are not aware of.
Movement is key to long term health! A regular movement practice helps to maintain the gains achieved during your manual therapy session. You will be provided exercise recommendations which are tailored to your specific needs, goals and lifestyle.
Our manual therapy treatments include a variety techniques which are chosen to specifically address the type of tissue that is creating the restriction. For example, a technique that addresses a muscle tension will have no affect on a fascial restriction! Selecting the right technique ensures a change is being made and will require fewer treatments.
We are in the process of creating an online video resource with commonly prescribed exercises to ensure you are doing them correctly at home! New videos will be added regularly to specifically address the needs of current patients
A treatment plan will be developed targeted to address the biggest dysfunctions found during the assessment. By first treating the problems most limiting your health our treatment plans are much more efficient then simply treating the area of a symptom.
At Whole Body Therapy we want you to understand your body as much as possible and give you the tools to help yourself. We use numerous educational images, models and software to help you understand exactly what we are treating and why. The more you know, the more you will be able to make links between your symptoms and your lifestyle habits.
